Nineteen of Qatar’s rising musicians are competing to be crowned winners of the first ever Nagham Competition being organised by the Music Affairs Center under the Ministry of Culture and Sports.

Videos of the performances of the 19 finalists comprising vocalists and instrumentalists were uploaded yesterday on the Music Affairs Center’s YouTube channel and it’s now up to the jury and the public to decide who deserve to win through online voting until September 10.

The finalists were selected from among the many submissions by a esteemed jury to advance to the next stage of the competition. The competition, which was opened to amateur musicians living in Qatar of any age and nationality, is divided into two categories namely singing and solo performance of any musical instrument. 

In the singing category, the finalists are Mohammed Al Haidous, Hashim Al Yafie, Ahmed Mohsen, Arianne Sayegh, Mohammed Al Balushi, Mohamed Ouda, Nidhikshana Paul, Lamar Bayoumy, and Janna Thomson. In the musical instrument performance category, the finalists include Mohammed Al Abdulla, Zeena AlMansoori, George Samir Dayoub, Ayshi Saha Roy, William Mcchesney, Abdulrahman Al Sowaidi, Hassan Ahmad Al Hajali, Mia Park Torchinsky, Nidhikshana Paul, and Vishrut Anand.

The diverse lineup of finalists comprise Qataris and residents hailing from different countries including Lebanon, Bangladesh, Syria, the UK, India, Egypt, Yemen, and Oman.

All the finalists were given equal chance to record a music video of their performance in the Music Affairs Center production studio which can be viewed on the YouTube channel of Music Affairs Center.

A total of six winners will be chosen. One winner from each category will be selected by the jury and two winners from each category through online voting which already started yesterday. The winners will be invited to perform in a final event. 

Under the Department of Culture and Arts at the Ministry of Culture and Sports, the Music Affairs Center continues to play an active role in supporting music activities in Qatar, developing talents and spreading the culture of music to citizens and residents.

It has been organising events for the community such as music festivals which focus on reflecting the importance of cultural diversity of the communities residing in Qatar and reflect the ministry’s vision of stressing the importance of opening up to other cultures. 

The Center has also presented shows and concerts such as the unforgettable performance of “The Holy Trilogy”, a monumental musical masterpiece by the late celebrated Egyptian composer Riad Al Sunbati which was performed by the Qatar Philharmonic

Orchestra as a fitting tribute to the composer who took the classical Arabic music to new heights and inspired millions of people around the world during his lifetime.

Recently, the Center announced it would present a live concert on its YouTube channel, under the theme “Music is the language of people” featuring a repertoire of songs by artiste Aseel Hameem and other Arab songs.
